Why Traceable AI?

Better foundation. Better protection.  Better Insights

Foundational advantage

Distributed Tracing captures it all.

Distributed tracing collects all your application communications, across API gateways, load balancers, proxies, Kubernetes clusters, service meshes, VM’s and containers, and within your application components too.
Doing so enables Traceable AI to document your entire API inventory and identify the communication behaviors between all internal and external APIs of the system and see where sensitive data is at risk.

Our TraceAI engine processes it all

Our TraceAI engine is optimized for learning from doing big data processing on huge amounts of distributed spans and traces. It learns by using many different algorithms to understand how each of your APIs is unique.  Once it baselines your APIs, it watches closely on thousands of data points to identify anomalous behavior that is malicious instead of just normal changes.

Application context is king

The outcome of all the trace data and big data crunching by our TraceAI is what we call Application Context. Application Context means we understand the behavior of your APIs, users, data, and code, as well as your API risk posture, and user trust.
Context is king for truly understanding the intent of your APIs to identify and protect against attackers that are not using your APIs as intended.

Better protection than WAFs and RASPs

Web Application Firewalls (WAFs) and Runtime Application Self Protection (RASP) are the current solutions mainly deployed to protect web applications. WAFs are designed to protect against known attacks, using signatures from those attacks. RASP does not have the context of any app or app component other than itself and therefore can’t see more sophisticated attacks that are more distributed in nature. Both of these technologies are designed to protect against some of the vulnerabilities identified in the OWASP (web) Top 10, such as SQL-injection and cross-site scripting. Neither was created to secure APIs and unfortunately create a false sense of security.
The OWASP API Top 10 list defines the 10 most commonly attacked API vulnerabilities. Traceable AI protects against both the OWASP (web) Top 10 and OWASP API Top 10 vulnerabilities. It does this by learning from all transactions across the entire application landscape, using hundreds of thousands of data points, to determine what are normal behaviors for APIs, data, users, and code for every application and API, so that it can detect and block known AND unknown attacks.
The following table illustrates in detail how Traceable AI protection compares to WAFs and RASPs.
